We loved the terrific lounger Carla and her husband made for their little boy, but truthfully we were having a hard time envisioning the PVC pipe frame inside and our sewing construction skills aren't the best either. We're in luck - by popular demand, Carla wrote up a detailed tutorial so you can make this at home yourself. It all made sense when we saw her photos!
We're willing to overlook the potential difficulty of cleaning these wool felt balls because this pouf is so darn colorful and fun. Described as "squishy, yet firm" it brings a lot of texture to the party, too.
The IKEA Benjamin stool is one of those super versatile pieces that comes in handy when you have kids. We use ours as stools, as the base for make-shift sensory tables, and as little tables for drawing or for snacks. They're looking a little beat up these days and could use a coat of paint or two.
Translation: vintage furniture and unusual objects for children and adults. Oh Edmond, you had us at bonjour. We could stare at the gallery of photographs featuring gorgeous objects and cute kids forever.
My son spends endless hours parked in his P'kolino Little Reader chair. I appreciate the clean lines and solid construction, he loves stashing books in its side pockets and holding court in our living room like a little pasha.

While we love the idea of a cozy spot to read, we're just not bean bag people, so we've made due with floor pillows. But leave it to the Swedes to rethink the bean bag and turn it into a Mountain Pouf:
We can't look at these without thinking of Springtime. It's a new, kid-friendly modular furniture line called Dots and Dashes, and the bright colors and fun shapes are just what we need to perk up our chilly, snowed-in spirits.
We've seen cardboard chairs before, but the Rip + Tatter by Pete Oyler is something different. Instead of overlooking the fact that it's constructed of cardboard, Oyler's chair works with the medium, creating a special aesthetic that is unusual and playful.
